Programming Vs. Making a Cup of Tea

This has always been one of our favorite analogies and also happens to be the easiest way to explain programming and software development to someone who doesn’t speak the same language. It’s been highly shared, and unfortunately, we don’t know who the original author was/is, but kudos to whomever wrote this gem. Read on. How …

Start Your Year The Easy Way

The end of the world never came, so here we are back to the grind at the start of what we’d like to hope will be another great year. One of the biggest issues with the new year is getting back into work mode. Everybody suffers from this (you’re lying if you deny it) including …

You Seriously Don’t Have A Facebook Account?!

If you, like us, have ever had the opportunity to meet somebody who doesn’t have a social media account, do you immediately ask them WHY? We do…there’s just something weird about not having a social media account or some shape or form nowadays. People borderline base eachothers’ existence on social media accounts. So what’s the …

Your Team

Being who we are, we spend a lot of time on the internet, which happens to be full of obscenities and entertainment. Through the grapevine, one of our staff learned of and brought a game into the office that we play on a regular basis that goes by the name Your Team. Now, “Your Team” …

Atomic Update: Formal Fridays

Formal Fridays So if you know anything about us at Atomic 55, it’s that we like to be um, comfortable. Well a new leaf has turned and we are cranking out the swank every Friday (if we can keep this up) with Formal Fridays. Gone will be the Fridays we show up in ball caps …

Office Experiments: Jumping Stilts

Believe it or not, we don’t just work and work during office hours. As baffling as it might be to believe, we stay after hours too (after being forced to tolerate each other 9-5 mind you) to conduct some very serious research. Example: If we put the tallest man in the office in a pair …

Valentine’s day

Possibly one of the most loved/hated days to grace the calendar, Valentine”s day invokes a turbulent mix of emotions in people, whether it be out of love, jealousy, self-pity, or an arsenal of other negative emotions. The unfortunate part about Valentine”s day is that it would appear to be more of an “I”m single and …

The Social Media Game

You’ve heard about how social media is becoming a huge marketing tool and how if you’re a company and don’t get into it then you’re falling behind etc etc. We won’t write another blog about that because frankly, this isn’t that kind of blog, if you’re smart enough to read this you’re smart enough to …

Every office has one of these.

***UPDATE*** Thanks for the concern everyone!  Cory is just fine.  I repeat he is OKAY.  He wasn’t harmed during this blog post. Every office has a jackass person who takes the office too seriously. Ours is named Jose Alejandro (names have been changed to protect the Google searches). He steals sandwiches, eats expired food, tells …

Office Pets

Did you know that we used to have an office Chihuahua?  Her name was Google. Fitting no? She was really cute. But she pooped everywhere.  It made the place smell bad.  Then she did the unthinkable and bit a kid.  In the knee. So we gave her away. And then that person gave her away …

New Office = New SHOPportunities

We had a potential office space buyer come into our office the other day and he posed a good question. He asked me if the infrastructure was included in the sale price of the unit.  I hadn’t really put a lot of thought into it either way; just the fact that I hadn’t thought about …
